About David S.

My name is David S, and I am a CompTIA- and Google-certified IT pro majoring in Information Technology at Moraine Park Technical College. I am currently working in a Technical Support role at Pitney Bowes and have been running my own computer repair business since 2017. My experience includes every Windows operating system since 95, along with Mac and Linux. I am highly knowledgeable and passionate about everything from basic office software, to servers, to the cloud, Internet, databases, and others. I also hold a B.S. in Animation.

Whatever your skill level is, I am certain that I can help you to attain your goals. I have over 4 years of experience tutoring both creative and technical students, so I am well-prepared for any type of lessons. Even though I work professionally, I am committed to helping others learn new skills.

Software Taught: Blender, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya, The Foundry NUKE, Blackmagic Design Fusion, mocha by Imagineer Systems, and 3DEqualizer.
